Perhaps stranger things have happened, but an astronaut claims aliens exist and are all about world peace, being attributed to preventing a nuclear war between the United States and Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) during the Cold War.
Former NASA astronaut, Edgar Mitchell, who was the sixth man to walk on the moon during his mission on Apollo 14, has been talking about the certainty of alien life for decades. There are many wonders outside our own planet, and Mitchell can definitely claim to have experienced some of them first hand.
For believers, an astronaut on their sides who has seen the overwhelming beauty of outer space, is excellent news. Now at 84 years old, Mitchell has claimed that it’s no coincidence that UFO has begun being seen around the age where man invented missiles and nuclear weapons. In fact, some of them were reportedly sighted around the White Sands of New Mexico, back in July 1945 where the world’s first nuclear weapons were tested.
According to Mitchell, aliens do not wish for destructive war to break out upon our planet and they have been studying our military capabilities for years. He states that multiple officers at military bases along the Pacific Coast have amplified his beliefs by stating that many of their missiles have been disabled due to alien interference.
It’s not the first pointed incident that astronaut Edgar Mitchell refers to in the history of the world when extraterrestrial life has been encountered without public knowledge. The matter has been highly debated and theorized along the years as one of our world’s biggest question. Opinions vary, but the retired astronaut seems quite clear in his beliefs.
Only two years ago, Mitchell has called out a certain event in 1947 that the government has been keeping under wraps, but some of the population believes it was the year of an alien spacecraft crashing onto our own planet. Bodies were reportedly recovered, but no evidence to support the claim has ever been uncovered, which is the truth to many of Mitchell’s claim.
Quoted to be a “truthful and honorable” man, Mitchell himself has admitted that he has no concrete proof to offer, and others, such as Nick Pope, a former UFO researcher at the Ministry of Defense, has underlined the overlooked fact that the former astronaut’s claims are mostly based on hearsay. None of the statements were first-hand experienced, but were more statements he received from others himself.
The mystery remains, though something can be said about an astronaut supporting such beliefs. Every space traveler has been deemed to undergo the Overview Effect, a state during which upon seeing our planet from outer space, most understand the fragility our home and its small significance compared to a large universe.
Perhaps experiencing the view of our stunning blue planet in midst of all the darkness could widen anyone’s beliefs that we cannot possibly be the only speck of life in such a vast and still unexplored world.
